Not long ago I was bemoaning the lack of visits by Long Tailed Tits so it was a really pleasant surprise when a small group suddenly appeared at the feeders. For once the camera was already set up:
I think this is the first time I have seen them mix with other birds and the Blue Tits seemed to keep staring at them as if they couldn't work out what these Humpty Dumpties with long tails were:
Even the House Sparrow seemed to be saying, 'Who invited you to tea?":
As usual they only stayed a short while before moving on as a group.
I hope they don't leave it so long before their next visit.
